CMTC is an amateur musical theatre society which began life in 1922 and we are looking forward to celebrating 100 years of the company in 2022.
Our mission is to help educate the public in the dramatic and operatic arts as well as furthering the development of public appreciation for these art forms.
We put on 2 shows a year in the local Chesham area - one in the spring and one in the autumn. Visit our Past Productions page to see the wide range of shows we have performed.
We are always looking out for new talent both on stage and behind the scenes:
There is nothing like the feeling of getting up on stage and being part of a dedicated company of like-minded performers. If this sounds like something you would like to do, we have an initial audition process where we ask you to sing a song of your choice in front of the committee when you first join the company; this is to get to know you and confirm your singing ability. For future shows, we hold acting, singing and dance auditions for individual roles in each production and these take place in front of an audition panel.
There are many different backstage roles that all need to be filled, which range from stage management to lighting design, art and programme development to set building. There are also roles for makeup, hair, and front of house. These important roles all depend upon willing volunteers and are vital for the smooth running of a show.
The company strives to be a social hub as well as a theatrical producer, and members are encouraged to come along to barbecues, quiz nights, theatre trips and summer picnics to name but a few. We also run our Second Friday Social (SFS) - a regular local meet-up where past and present members can catch up and socialise.
We are always looking for new members. Click here where you can find out more. Why not contact us and arrange to come along to a rehearsal and meet like-minded people who perform on stage and the team who keep everything going back stage.
